Business Intelligence (BI) means one hundred different things to one hundred different users. But, when used correctly, it can mean the difference between profits won and opportunities lost.
You’re creating data every day, but what you do with it is up to you. Atlas Advanced Business Intelligence® takes the data stored in your ADD Energy E3® or ADD eStore® (e.g. customer information, products, pricing, inventory, etc.) and turns it into valuable analytics that can help drive better business outcomes. Use your data to see how you rank up to industry standards, or use it just to compare one division or store to another.
The best part? Exception Reporting. ATLAS Reporting® targets unique areas of your data set to create easy-to-use and easy-to-understand reports that alert you to certain business activities that can help you “cut through the mess.” ATLAS Reporting offers you the ability to analyze your crucial business data because it understands your problems and intuitively knows how to address them.
For Convenience Stores, that means better understanding of POS scan data, such as where the best margins exist and what merchandise is the most profitable. Get a better vision of the customer experience. Discover the true effects of planograms and shelf sets. Create new promotions. Gain valuable insights into what your customers want, and stay ahead of changes in profitability so you can take action immediately.
For Distribution, there’s no better management tool. With access to general customer statistics, delivery information and more, ATLAS Reporting can help you examine and improve key areas of your business. Keep a close eye on profitability by customer, product, service work orders and contracts, geographical area, supplier, or whatever else you can dream up. Plus, ATLAS makes it easier to tell whether or not your customer base is growing or shrinking with true customer gain/loss reporting. Most importantly, ATLAS allows you to gather information from multiple sources into one system for easier analysis. With ATLAS, the cost of product, the cost of hauler and even the cost of tolls are now in one place.
Trend reporting is at your fingertips as well. ATLAS helps you determine if your past decisions were the right ones. Deliveries you make today can help you make better pricing decisions in the future. Or maybe you’ve implemented a new budget plan, changed some forecasting methods or added new products. ATLAS not only helps you determine if your decisions have been good ones but lets you learn from every one.
These are just a few of the things ATLAS can do for your business, but when you start getting the most out of your data, the possibilities are endless. Problems become solutions, and solutions become new ideas you never thought possible.
Many other companies offer Business Intelligence solutions, such as third-party consulting firms, but ATLAS Reporting is one of the only Business Intelligence solutions designed specifically for Petroleum Energy/HVAC and Convenience Stores. It offers the expertise and tools from a company that understands your business. ADD Systems is a proven leader in offering the databases and other technical items you’ll find from any third-party vendor, but what sets ATLAS Reporting apart is a true understanding of the products and operations Petroleum Energy/HVAC and Convenience Store businesses deal with every day.
You don’t want to work with a third-party vendor who doesn’t understand your data; you want to deal with experts who have created a Business Intelligence solution designed specifically for your business—experts who know your product and data set from the inside out.
